Roads Update from APD.Thursday, February 22, 2024, at 7AM:
The roads are gross.
All those nice dry main roads we had yesterday are gone. After a night of almost no sleep due to howling winds that made all of us think our houses were going to be ripped off their foundations and whisked away to the land of Oz, someone turned on the snow faucet at around 4AM. Several inches of heavy wet white cement showed up in about two hours. It’s the kind of mess that yanks your tires all over the roadway and forces you into other lanes without your permission. Even in all-wheel drive.
You are going nowhere quickly this morning. Be extra careful. It’s one of those days where you know you’re sitting in the driver’s seat of your car, but it feels like someone else is steering. Someone who is in no condition to drive.
